Good page and discussion on S. ciliosum forms in the Galicican mountain range.
http://stalikez.info/fsm/semp/site/galic_gb.php

For those looking for S. galicicum, can find it listed as a form of ciliosum.
Sempervivum ciliosum var. galicicum from Mali Hat:

ZZ showed in his last lecture at the Czech- German Rockgardening Meeting in the Würzburg Botanical garden
pictures from his Balkan trip. Among many splendid plants and landscapes were also plants of Semp.ciliosum
var.galicicum in their natural habitat and almost all grew in tight crevices. The few other ones in open ground
were all bigger and not in character, a good advice how to place them in the garden.

I have grown 'Mali Hat' for decades and am amazed I can't seem to find a single picture of it: it is one of the best of the genus. I did find pix of two closely related taxa. The first is S. ciliosum 'Borisii' and the second S. octopodes. As Rudy suggests, they really should be grown in tight quarters: these are on a south facing wall that bakes hard in the summer.
Senior curator at Denver Botanic Gardens, I have rock gardened for over 50 years. Faves include cushion plants, bulbs, troughs, South African and Mediterranean plants and the windy steppes of Asia. The American West. (Oh yes, I love cacti, ferns and woody plants too...)
